Stephanie Pierce and lab members are at Blue Beach Fossil Museum in Hantsport Nova Scotia searching for fossils from the lower carboniferous rock period. Carboniferous rocks help fill in "Romer's Gap", the period of time that explains the evolution of tetrapods from fish 360 million years ago. Outside of Nova Scotia, carboniferous fossils haven't been located anywhere else except Scotland. The Chronicle Herald coverage of the team's work includes a video. News: Boston Globe.
